I was definitely the kid that got in trouble reading past my bedtime. Not that I got "in trouble" but I often read after my bedtime for sure. Remembering reading with a flashlight in our trailer house.
"I prefer to go to bed with a good book--or at least with a friend who has read one lately."--the late great Phyllis Diller. My now belated sweetheart and I always read to each other in bed. There is no other life.
